Talking about home testing for HIV

A really great relief

A really great relief to have access to this simple and quick test which arrived within 24hrs of speaking with HertsAid (free service). They were extremely helpful on the phone.

It was the first time I’ve used a self-test kit and it was totally user friendly ie simple, clear instructions for everyone.

Currently, I understand the self-test identifies antibodies only.

Hopefully future kits may include for antigens also (which may help with detection of more recent infections ?)

Nevertheless a great tool in the HIV arena. Thank you.
